    Default beating the post man ?

    how is it possible , I love giving away crappie tackle , it makes me happy to send baits and such out , but how on earth do you beat the US postal service rates .....
    they are ridiculous to say the least , a small padded envelope with about nothing in it runs me about 5 bucks ....
    is there a secret I am unaware of , it bothers me to spend 30% of the tackles worth on postage .....
    btw , your plastics will be there Saturday ...."Bojac" ....

    It seems it's that way across the board Ketchn. The rates they charging for ground mail is what we used to pay for overnite, or 2nd day delivery...

    I mailed some stuff to two members here recently. On box to Memphis was either $12.20 two to five day service but two day guarantee for a quarter more. Rates are high but so is everything else at this point in time.

    Rates to ship anything are certainly ridiculous
    The love for fishing is one of the best gifts you can pass along
